inside the county building Saturday afternoon in Wailuku. Kaohu met them
with the cart to help carry signature forms, but it was not needed. Walker,
Romero and others are seeking to have Mayor Michael Victorino recalled over
COVID-19 mandates and other issues. The Clerk’s Office is currently
examining and verifying each signature turned in by recall organizers, who
need signatures of no less than 20 percent of Maui County registered voters
(21,586) in the last general election in order to trigger the recall
election. The Maui News / MATTHEW THAYER photo
The Maui County Clerk’s Office is currently examining each signature turned
in Saturday by a group attempting to recall Mayor Michael Victorino over
COVID-19 mandates along with long-standing county issues that include
affordable housing and water rights.
On Saturday, recall organizers turned in signatures they collected during
the 30-day signature gathering period allowed by county law. Now the county
clerk has 20 days from that time — from Sunday to Dec. 10 — to determine the
sufficiency of the documents submitted. It will be followed by the
certification showing the results of the examination process.
Lead organizer Sheila Walker of South Maui declined to divulge the number of
in-person signatures they obtained or if they had reached the threshold of
having no less than 20 percent of Maui County registered voters (21,586) in
the last general election sign the petition.
But she did say on Monday that they obtained “a lot of signatures” and that
about 95 percent of the approximately 500 clipboards that were used to
circulate the petition around the island had been returned to them by the
Walker said there were still people calling her after the deadline Saturday
night and Sunday trying to turn their clipboards in. She said this shows the
group had more signatures that could have been provided to the clerk.
Walker had told The Maui News on Friday morning that 75 of the approximately
500 clipboards had been returned with about 3,000 signatures.
“I’m super excited,” Walker said on Monday. “I’m charged up. I’m ready for
round two. We are not going to back down. We are going to push forward.”
Walker was referring to receiving the results of the number of signatures
deemed sufficient or insufficient and the opportunity to obtain more
In an email, County Clerk Kathy Kaohu explained, “In the event the initial
petition contains insufficient signatures, the recall petition may be
supported by supplemental signatures, in the same manner and requirements as
the recall petition. The supplemental petition time-frame allows for 20 days
to gather supplement signatures.”
If the total signatures on the petition do not meet the 20 percent Maui
County Charter requirement, the petition could be deemed “insufficient.” A
signature could also be deemed “insufficient” due to missing required voter
“While our focus right now is to determine the sufficiency of the
information submitted to our office within our 20-day timeframe, there is a
likelihood that the results of the certification may trigger a supplemental
petition process,” Kaohu said.
According to the charter, after a supplemental petition is filed, the county
clerk has 10 days to examine it.
If the clerk’s examination shows it to be still insufficient, no new
petition for the recall of the mayor can be filed within one year
On Friday, Victorino echoed his previous sentiments about the effort, saying
he recognizes the group’s right to organize a recall effort.
But he added that he continues to serve the people of Maui County “with my
whole heart” and said people have contacted his office with words of
If all signatures needed are gathered and deemed sufficient, then Victorino
has five days to decide whether or not to resign. If he does not resign,
then a special recall election may take place where Maui County registered
voters can vote on his removal, according to the County Charter.
If the majority votes for removal, then Managing Director Sandy Baz becomes
the acting mayor.
